For Canadian exporters, perhaps more than ever before, NOW is the best time to sell in the USA. According to International Market Access (IMA), Inc.’s president, Jim Pettinger, “It’s a no-brainer.”
Why? Simple. The US dollar is worth more than the Canadian dollar. If you sell your good or service in the US, it’ll earn you an easy 15% more just because it’s in US funds.
Additionally, eliminating cross-border issues by using US based distribution warehouses and ‘Pick-N-Pack’ order fulfillment centers, like IMA, Canadian exporters not only save exponentially on shipping & handling charges but they instill a US consumer confidence by presenting as a US based business.
Further dollars are saved by reducing cross-border freight movements, and having fewer currency conversions. A hassle-free reverse logistics (returns/repairs) partner means no customs declarations are needed.
On May 7th, a group of veteran Canada/USA and International trade experts will provide practical guidelines to British Columbia entrepreneurs and professionals at a one-day seminar in Delta, BC entitled ‘Doing Business in the USA‘. This comprehensive seminar is designed to give Canadian manufacturers, importers/exporters, distributors, and other business professionals the tools they need to easily expand their business across the border.
The ‘Doing Business in the USA’ seminar is sponsored by Cascadia Cross-Border Law, Moss Adams LLP, Law Office of Gene Moses, International Market Access, Inc., Pacific Customs Brokers, Inc., Wells Fargo (Bellingham) Sterling Real Estate Group, Gilmour Knotts Inc., and HUB International.
